Women In Need’s annual Glow Run is a Race4Every1! Whether you are an experienced runner, or just run for fun, this is the race for you! All two-leggers and four-leggers are welcome (as long as four-leggers are leashed). Bring the whole family, create a team of co-workers or neighbors; there is plenty of room for everyone!
Why register for the WIN Glow Run? Because 10 million is too large a number for organizations to WIN the race to end domestic violence alone. In the United States, nearly 20 people per minute are experiencing domestic or intimate partner violence. That comes to over 10,000,000 women and men suffering abusive behavior such as physical, sexual, economic, or emotional abuse as well as coercive abuse per year.
When you register for the WIN Glow Run 5K, you are helping us bring awareness to the hidden secret of domestic violence. Domestic violence bulldozes through every barrier. It does not discriminate against age, gender, sexual orientation, political affiliations, ethnicity, race, religion, or social class. It invades and destroys families in every neighborhood.
However, when we bring awareness to the plight of families in Hunt, Rockwall, and Rains Counties affected by intimate partner and domestic abuse, the glow of hope will emerge. And it is on the Wings of Hope that we can Run Toward a Safer Tomorrow.
